The Casino at the Empire is the venue for the London leg of the LCI 2012 UK Poker Tour, which kicks off today at 17:00. Featuring four events, the London leg of the newest poker tour in the UK should attract some of the capital's top players as it tries to take advantage of the fact London is the place to be for poker in September.
Kicking off the five-day festival is a £108 No Limit Hold'em tournament that begins at 17:00 this evening. For their money players will receive 15,000 chips, will play to a 30-minute clock and re-entry is permitted during the first three levels. According to the LCI 2012 UK Poker Tour website, 25 seats have been added to the Main Event which suggests the top 25 players will receive a seat to Friday's £220 tournament as a bonus.
Thursday night sees a £108 Pot Limit Omaha tournament take place, for those of you who prefer four hole cards to two, whilst Friday marks Day 1a of the £220 LCIPT Main Event that carries a £50,000 guarantee. Main Event players will start with a generous stack of 40,000 chips and if they dust them off within the first six 45-minute levels they can re-enter for a further £220.
Rounding out the mini-series is a £100 Bounty Event that will take place at 19:00 on Sunday.
